I am working on finishing a couple of projects using shellac. I need to mask off certain areas to prevent the shellac from penetrating that area. In some places I brush the shellac on and in another I apply shellac with a rag. Specifically I need to mask a 3/4” circle on a flat piece of cedar. I will later glue something to the masked area.
I have tried blue painter’s tape and round white dots I purchased from the big box office supply store. Both had the shellac flow right under the tape / dot. In fact the shellac seemed to release the glue on the dots.
Will you suggest something that I can use to mask an area to prevent shellac from affecting that area.
